FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) — A business in Fishers offered a active shooter seminar this weekend.
Krav Maga Worldwide offers classes like the seminar year-round, but wanted to do a special course based on the tragedies that have been occurring all over the U.S.
Participants learned ways to respond in case they find themselves in the same room with a shooter.
The center transformed their training space into a restaurant, movie theater and bar to replicate scenarios so participants could put their newly acquired skills into action.
“The fun part is all the striking that we get to do, but the real passion is the knowledge that we give people mentally to be able to understand their surroundings, what they can use to defend themselves, strike with, where the exits are located, how many people are involved,” said Jeff Fredericksen, owner of Krav Maga Worldwide.
Fredericksen says they offer this type of training classes all year round. They even over women’s self defense classes as well as classes for kids.
